The Salina Bombers already have the best corps of receivers in the CPIFL. They may have just gotten better. The Bombers are proud to announce the signing of former Kansas State wide receiver Attrail Snipes.
Attrail Snipes attended high school in Seattle, Washington at Ranier Beach High School. There, Snipes excelled at football and also used his 4.4 second/40 time to capture state titles in sprinting events. After high school, Attrail would attend Bakersfield Community College in California. In his sophomore season of 2007, Snipes would grab 55 receptions for 800 yards and 13 touchdowns. Snipes would initially commit to the University of Hawaii, but soon would change his mind.
Following one trip to Manhattan, Attrail Snipes committed to play for the Wildcats. After just one catch in his first season in purple, Snipes had a solid senior year. In 2009, Snipes was second on KSU’s team in receiving, catching 28 passes for 424 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Attrail Snipes played in 5 games this season with the Kansas Koyotes of the CPIFL, and was placed on waivers on April 29th.
Ricky Roberts and Pelton Smalls lead a group of already dangerous Bomber receivers that have helped quarterback Dane Simoneau to over 1200 yards and 24 touchdowns in just seven games. Roberts and Smalls rank first and second, respectively, in the CPIFL and have combined for 17 touchdowns and 851 yards, an average of 121.5 yards per game. Seth Myers has had two highlight touchdown catches in the last two weeks and Benardis Hughes had a long touchdown last week as well.
The Bombers (5-2) are currently tied for third in the CPIFL and will travel to Wichita to take on the Wild (8-1) this Saturday at 7:05 pm at Hartman Arena.
